Day 03: Full Day tour of The Three Cities and Prehistoric Past
Today you head to the Three Cities after a brief drive through Senglea and Cospicua, you will stop at the waterfront of the city of Birgu which was established on the Grand Harbour of Malta around Fort St. Angelo, and served as Malta's principal harbour. When the Knights of St. John arrived in 1530, they made Birgu the capital city of Malta, since the former capital, Mdina, was inland and did not suit their naval requirements. A brief tour around the Collachio (an area reserved only for the Knights) will show you the many old Auberges of the Knights, and the Inquisitor’s Palace. Later visit to the Maritime Museum and Inquisitors Palace. Afternoon you visit the temple of Hagar Qim which was excavated for the first time in 1839, and dates from the Ġgantija phase (c. 3600 - 3200 BC). It stands on a hilltop overlooking the sea and the islet of Fifla. Ghar Dalam Cave is another very important site you will visit, as it was here that the earliest evidence of human settlement on Malta, around 7,400 years ago. After Ghar Dalam you will visit the Tarxien Temples which are the most complex of all temple sites in Malta and dates back to 3600 to 2500 BC. The temples are especially renowned for the detail of their carvings, which include domestic animals carved in relief, altars, and screens decorated with spiral designs and other patterns.
